New Amy Winehouse Song Surfaces
While it's looking increasingly unlikely that Amy Winehouse will have a new album out in January 2011, as she promised over the summer, a new track by the singer is quickly making its way around the web.
It's a cover of Lesley Gore's 1963 classic "It's My Party," which was produced by Winehouse's go-to collaborator Mark Ronson for the Quincy Jones tribute album Q: Soul Bossa Nostra (out Nov. 9). Jones served as executive producer on the collection, his first original album since 1995's Q's Juke Joint. It features interpretations of songs affiliated with the legendary music man.
As for Winehouse's contribution?
The horn-heavy track has all the trappings of a classic Phil Spector recording and fans and critics alike seem to be responding positively.
Coming on the heels of the Winehouse-inspired streetwear collection, created by British designer Fred Perry, which debuted last week with a stunning and completely sane photo of the beleaguered star, it looks as if a full-scale comeback is on deck -- and it couldn't come soon enough.
